Full Answer

The milligram (mg) and the gram (g) are both measurements of weight or mass in the metric measurement system. One gram is equal to 1000 milligrams. The milliliter (ml) is a measurement of volume in the metric measurement system. One milliliter is equal to 1 gram; there is a 1:1 ratio between the two units of measure. To convert an amount from milligrams to milliliters, divide the amount by 1000 to convert to grams, and divide the new amount by 1 to convert to milliliters.
